Allow me to be assumptious (not a word?), presumptious (misspelled) ... and braggadocious...

(Oops... it's spelled 'presumptuous'... And 'assumptious' (or 'assumptuous') is really not a word.)

We're doing a book signing of our latest only book, BEAR VALLEY AND ME, tomorrow at Bear Valley Community Church, 7900 Precinct Line Road, Colleyville, TX 76034, after the 10 o'clock and 11:15 services.

(It's about how I wanted to start the church, then I didn't want to start it, then we started it, and then I was GLAD we did.... and how I felt along the way.  (It started out as a history of Bear Valley, but I couldn't resist writing my feelings about it all.))

I'm assuming and presuming you might be interested in this book.

But here's a true story: a man and his wife came into the tea room a couple of years ago, and after they ate, he came over and handed me a book.  "I'm giving you this as my tip for your playing.  I wrote this book and many folks have liked it. I would love for you to read it and tell me what you think." 

Geez.

That 'Geez' is because he came in about a month later and wanted to know if I liked it.
I couldn't tell him that I'd started on the first page (out of obligation) and didn't go for it. (It was a novel about a young missionary lady and her romance - or something.)   Fortunately I didn't have the feeling I HAD to read it, so I didn't.  (I'm the boss of me.) But then he came in - whoa.  I told him I had started it - and then life happened, I got busy, and well, I thanked him again for it.  Hopefully I would read it soon.  (And I read more of it - enough to tell him that he 'had a way with words.')

So I'm telling you that you don't have to READ the book.
Just rejoice with us that we WROTE the book!

And you can get a signed copy tomorrow!!
